Will the Lakers Make the Playoffs?

4 years ago

So far the Lakers are 1 spot away from the 8th seed of the Western Conference in the NBA (1 spot away from being able to make the playoffs). When the NBA season started back in November I could not have dreamed or imagined myself saying that. The 2012-2013 Lakers starting five players consists of Steve Nash, Pau Gasol, Kobe Bryant and DWIGHT HOWARD. To people not familiar with NBA basketball or follow the Lakers these individual players are simply AMAZING (perhaps all future Hall of Famers). When the Lakers acquired Nash and Howard in the summer of 2012 making the playoffs was a no-brainer and it would only be a matter of playing out the season and reaching the NBA Finals. The situation now is entirely different, many people now are doubting if the Lakers will even reach the postseason. I think the Lakers will make the playoffs even though they are still a couple of games away from catching the currently 8th seeded Houston Rockets. Despite people saying that players like Nash, Kobe and Gasol are old I believe the Lakers have enough motivation from Dr. Buss` (Lakers` owner) passing and their desire to win to will themselves to grind out each and every game to achieve their wins and eventually make the playoffs.
Do you think the Lakers will make the playoffs? I would love to hear your opinions!
